EyeXam is now available on Apple iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod touch) and Android devices reaching over 700 million mobile users, an announcement said.

"The overwhelming interest and demand by consumers downloading the EyeXam app has opened a new avenue for eyecare practitioners to connect with new and existing patients, and for the eyecare industry to reach and directly interact with a motivated target audience. The primary purpose is to educate the public on the importance of professional eye examinations and drive more patient traffic to eyecare practices" said Nikki Iravani, OD, founder and CEO of Global EyeVentures.
